4 ways our Small Change initiative helps you put the planet first when you travel!
Have you ever thought about how many plastic bottles you buy and consequently waste during your trips? Well, we thought about that for you! With our small change initiative, we aim to reduce the use of plastic by offering water refill stations at every stop of your destination! Therefore, you won’t need to spend money buying water and won’t need to use another dispensable piece of plastic that would probably end up in our oceans. Just grab your reusable water bottle and refresh yourself while making the difference to the world we all care about.
Unconscious tourism can be very harmful to the environment and pollution is a big problem in many of our destinations. Despite the efforts to maintain their homes, the local communities aren’t able to do everything by themselves so we encourage our travellers to be part of a bigger cause in helping clean up the trash brought from the oceans that end up littering beautiful beaches on our way. It is our responsibility to minimize our environmental impact and do what’s within our power to make a positive difference to where we are always welcomed.
You may not know but behind many animal services there is suffering and exploitation, and this is no different in Thailand where you might have seen a cute picture of someone riding an elephant or painting with their trunk. Fortunately, some places exist where exploited animals that can’t be reinserted in nature are brought in and taken care of. During our trips, we only take our travellers to visit these kinds of animal sanctuaries in order to be around wildlife without harming it. Although some places charge entry, all the money goes toward maintaining the sanctuary and helping take care of those who were once in danger in other hands. While travelling it is always good to research before accepting any animal-related service as you might be supporting its exploitation instead of well being.
Travelling without damaging
People from all around the world want to come to Australia and dive in the blue waters of Queensland coast to check out the Great Barrier Reef. It's an incredible and beautiful experience, but it won’t be for too long if we don’t take care of the biggest living organism on earth. Our coral reefs are disappearing with time due to various reasons such as climate change, fishing, pollution and last but not least unsustainable tourism. It may look harmless at the moment but stepping on corals or removing living organisms from reefs are very dangerous actions that cause ecosystem disorder and harms marine life forever. We make it our aim to educate our travellers on what to avoid in order to preserve nature and wildlife on their adventures.
Sustainability is such an important concept to keep in mind when you organize your vacations. Check out our Small Change page to learn more about the initiatives in our trips!
